Food to love : Cinnamon Scones.

This past weekend I was in Dallas visiting family and throwing a baby shower for my sister. It was so good to be home. Right now is the perfect time to be in Texas, it is sunny and crisp outside... it almost makes you forget about the miserable heat this past summer (almost). Well, I also took full advantage of being in Dallas by eating at a couple of great restaurants MoMo's (a family favorite for as long as I can remember) and Company Cafe (this was my first time here, and I will definitely be going again!). But, I have to say, the best part of being home is getting spoiled by my mom's incredible cooking. I know everyone says that their mom is the best cook, but they are wrong, because my mom is. No doubt :) She made an incredible homemade chili, delicious scones, and two amazing quiches. I only hope one day to be as good as she is in the kitchen. It would be a dream to see her open a bakery then everyone can enjoy her food!

I thought I would share the scone recipe for a perfect fall breakfast. Enjoy!

Sweet Cinnamon Scones

3 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 whole egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup cinnamon chips

1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cinnamon, and baking powder. Cut butter into pieces then cut into dry ingredients with pastry cutter until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in cinnamon chips. Mix together cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour into flour/butter mixture, stirring gently with a fork to combine. Turn onto work surface (mixture will be very crumbly and falling apart). Gently press together on the sides as you flatten or roll the top. Form either into a large circle or a large rectangle. Mix together topping ingredients, stirring with a fork. Sprinkle over the top of the dough, lightly pressing. Cut into wedges or triangles. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
